Cher is not one for being subtle unless it obviously comes to shading Madonna.
The legendary diva has seemed to have reignited a 30-year feud with the Queen of Pop.
Did Cher shade Madonna?
The Dancing Queen star tweeted that she needed to ‘shoot her phone’ yesterday.
One fan responded by messaging her two images, a screenshot of Madonna’s two songs Gang Bang and Revolver.
With it, they said, ‘madonna’s impact omg’.
With expert shade, Cher replied: ‘She was a visionary’.
Notice the ‘was’ in that sentence.
Many fans responded in glee at the playful comment.

It was thought Madonna and Cher had finally put their feud to rest.
Putting the feud to rest
Cher was asked back in 2013: ‘Do you still hate Madonna?’
Cher, long known for answering questions honestly, replied: ‘Madge, no. Actually I don’t. I never hated her, I just thought she was a bitch.’
Madonna has managed, like Cher, to remain musically relevant and commercially successful for decade after decade. But Cher had her first number one hit in 1965, nearly two decades before Madonna first topped the charts with Like A Virgin.
In the Reddit session, Cher also said of the Material Girl: ‘Actually I quite respect her. Actually I think Madge might be one of the most amazing artists I’ve known. I don’t like everything she does, for sure, but she is always riding the crest of the wave. She always saw trends WAY before anyone else, and had great videos. So, besides saying ‘WTF is MDNA’, I’m fine with it.’
In the summer of 2012, Twitter followers turned on Cher for making a sly dig at Madonna.
‘WTF is MDNA?’, she tweeted before posting a sarcastic comment about the record’s name once fans explained it was a play on words referring to the party drug MDMA, more commonly known as ecstasy.
‘How tasteful!’ Cher replied.
Then there was backlash before Cher tweeted that she didn’t mean to offend: ‘Doesn’t any fkng body cut slak 4 fkng mistakes! It not like I cut her heart out with a spoon! Madge & I are cool!’
